There's not much to talk about today, but I thought you might enjoy something pretty to look at.
You know how you get scheduled for blood work, and they tell you not to eat or drink anything after midnight, and then when you get to the lab they ask for a urine specimen? I don't know about you, but with me, there's not a lot coming out; especially after you've already gone once at home. That happened to me yesterday, so they gave me a sample bottle and said to bring it back in a day or two. I ended up regretting that I had been unable to give the specimen on Monday. I thought all I had to do was drop it off - but noooooooo. First the receptionist has to generate a work order (even though you had one yesterday) and then you have to wait in line until the technician is ready for you. I thought it would only take a few minutes, but it took almost half an hour. Next time I need to give a specimen, I'm going to pick up the bottle the day before!
Now that I've scraped the bottom of the barrel by talking about urine specimens.....we can get on to other stuff. Sometimes the simplest foods are the most satisfying. Mr. kenju asked for tomato soup and grilled Swiss cheese on rye last night and it hit the spot (wherever that is.) Topping it off with an oatmeal raisin cookie and hazelnut coffee was a nice ending to a humble meal.
